How is a Madhubani painting made?

Madhubani painting is also known as Mithila art as it is practiced in the Mithila region of India and Nepal. It has specifically originated from the Madhubani district of the state of Bihar. Traditionally, the women of this region created these paintings and in recent years, it has become a widely practiced art and has now become renowned throughout the world. This art expresses the creativity and culture of the people of Mithila and is passed from one generation to another. In this way, the heritage of Madhubani art has been preserved for many decades.

The subjects of these paintings are usually religion, love, and fertility. Sometimes, social events like festivals, weddings, and royal court are also depicted in the paintings. The most commonly painted designs and themes are the forms of Hindu Gods and Goddesses such as Ganesha, Shiva, Saraswati, Lakshmi, Krishna, and Ram. The characteristic features of Madhubani paintings are their vibrant colors and eye-catching geometrical patterns. The empty spaces are filled with traditional motifs such as floral and foliate patterns, animals, birds, geometrical structures, and other designs. The local artists create these paintings using a variety of items such as matchsticks, twigs, brushes, pens, or even their own fingers. The paints are usually made with natural dyes and pigments.

As simple as it may seem, the making process of the world-famous Madhubani paintings is certainly not easy and requires lots of hard labor.

Traditional Madhubani paintings are done either on cloth, handmade paper, or canvas. Select the medium of painting as per your choice. If you have chosen cloth, attach it to cardboard to make a solid base.

The making of the painting begins with making a double-lined border. This is a very important step because the border is filled with various geographical shapes and patterns or other motifs. The average width of the border is 1.5 - 2 cm.

Now that the border is created, you will be left with a blank middle space. This is the main workspace. Start drawing your choice of figure, designs, and shapes. These must be relevant to the Madhubani painting themes.


When the key design has been made, the empty spaces in between are filled with some designs.

Now is the time to color the painting using vivid shades and hues. Colors in Madhubani are sourced from nature; Indigo is used to produce blue, flower juice produces red, turmeric gives yellow, leaves produce green, cow dung mixed soot gives black, and rice powder gives white.


To paint these colors, the artist uses a bamboo stick and wraps cotton around it. This acts as a traditional brush.


The entire painting is now painted using this special brush with natural vibrant colors. · However, in modern times, the common brush is used and instead of natural colors, artists prefer to use acrylic paints.

Since the entire painting is made with natural materials and colors, it appears simple yet enriching. Originally, this art was created on mud walls or soil grounds but when it evolved over many years, the people of Madhubani started to make it on fabric and paper. Today, this art has become globalized and is receiving worldwide attention and appreciation.

Using Yantra for Healing: The Benefits of Integrating Yantra into Your Wellness Routine

Yantra is a geometrical diagram that is mainly associated with the Tantric traditions of Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. It is viewed as a sacred object and is considered a Mandala or a prime tool for practicing Sadhana by spiritual seekers and transcendentalists. Yantras are associated with a particular deity and are used for attracting specific benefits such as wealth, health, protection from negative energies, etc. The geometric forms in a Yantra are arranged in a symmetrical pattern. These patterns and designs are diagrammatic representations of specific Mantras which help to bring in positive energy. The Mantras not only heal the individual physically and mentally but also help in elevating them in their spiritual path. A Yantra has a certain kind of impact on the space in which you live and therefore, it is preferred to install it near the entrance of your house or in your living room. It may also be put up on walls.
There are different types of healing Yantras. These are very powerful and every Yantra has its own benefits and healing energy. Let us take a look at some of the benefits that Yantras offer:

Relief from diseases

Yantra is designed according to the Vedic scriptures. It frees the worshiper from major or fatal diseases and provides them with mental peace. A person is advised to worship Yantras such as Rog Nivaran Yantra, Shri Dhanvantari Upasana Yantra, and Maha Mrityunjaya (Shiva Yantra).

Resolve marital issues

Installing Yantra and worshiping it by chanting the associated mantra helps bring good luck in life. Men and women facing marital issues or struggling to find a life partner are advised to worship the Mangal Yantra, Katyayani Yantra, Mohini Yantra, and Shukra Yantra as they reverse all the negative issues in marital life.

Remove obstacles in life

People who are facing the onslaught of miseries and sufferings in their life are recommended to meditate upon the Shani Yantra, Shri Ganesha Yantra, and Pujanartha Mangal Yantra.

Protection from evil powers
